Many Different Treatments for Hair Loss

Dr. Curtis and Dr. Griffin - Griffin Center - BSAThere are an estimated 56 million men and women currently suffering from hair loss in the United States and, unfortunately, the majority of those afflicted never even bother to seek treatment. Many simply accept that hair loss is unavoidable—the result of bad genetic “luck”—while others valiantly attempt to hold it at bay but believe that there are only a few limited options available. These beliefs could not be further from the truth. At The Griffin Center for Hair Restoration and Research, we have been treating the many different forms of hair loss for more than 40 years. We  have found that there are actually several different treatment options that can be used, either separately or in combination, to address a number of different causes of hair loss and individual patient requirements.

Topical Minoxidil (Rogaine®): Applied directly to the scalp, minoxidil increases the size of shrunken hair follicles and can keep them in the growth phase longer.

Oral Finasteride (Propecia®/Proscar®):  A daily oral dose of finasteride inhibits the production of specific enzymes that have been found to trigger common genetic-pattern hair loss.

Custom Blended Prescription Medications: After a thorough diagnosis, our hair-loss specialists can determine the exact concentration of various active ingredients that will achieve the best possible results with the least possible side effects.

Red Light Laser Therapy: Focused, red-spectrum light, applied directly to the scalp, increases energy production around the hair follicles, waking cells from dormancy into an active growth phase.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy: A highly concentrated solution of the patient’s own blood platelets, injected into the scalp, stimulates the natural healing process to accelerate the regeneration of damaged hair follicles.

Hair Transplantation Surgery: Using the most advanced follicular unit grafting (FUG) and follicular unit extraction (FUE) techniques, we remove healthy hair follicles from the back or sides of the scalp and place them into areas that have begun to thin, giving your hair a thicker, more full appearance.

Finally, there are also several specialized haircare products and vitamin supplements that can be used in combination with any of these treatments to further optimize the results. Deciding what is the best way to address your specific form of hair loss is best done during a thorough consultation with experienced hair-restoration specialists Dr. Edmond Griffin or Dr. Ashley Curtis. Together, we can precisely diagnose the causes of your hair loss and discuss your individual health considerations in order to put together a treatment plan that is right for you.
